Archaeologists Uncover 2,600 Years Old Ancient Treasure

Italian archaeologists unearthed an ancient tomb in central Italy.

The burial place was once a thriving Etruscan city, which started as early as 900 B.C.

Archaeologists also discovered well-preserved utensils, cups, iron items, ceramics, and decorative pieces, the municipality said.
